15A few random points:
The Haul Road is open to traffic to Deadhorse, but thats just short of the Arctic Ocean....which was not what the OP asked about. The Inuvik road also stops short of the ocean....but that's still not what the OP asked. f you want to see the ocean in Deadhorse you sign up in advance for a bus tour. In Inuvik you charter a plane.
The OP did not ask about camping out in Churchill.
And: wishful thinking notwithstanding, Churchill is not the arctic. In fact, it's a long way from the arctic, although it's quite close to treeline. So is northern Newfoundland, but that's not the arctic either. Same with Iceland. The arctic is defined by the Arctic Circle in the same way that the tropics are defined by the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Churchll might be called subarctic if you wanted to severely stretch the point.
Lastly, the OP is not going to find a cheaper way to get to the arctic than flying from Montreal or driving via Alaska.
We now return you to your regular scheduled programming.

16actually flying with firstair from Montreal to iqaluit IS the cheapest city within canada, unless that changed recently without my knowledge.

Bags feeling light?
Coffee table looking bare?
